    a really symple syndication feed is like a message feed that allows you to inform people of updates without using email. an example from my site (http://kayeskinner.com/feed2.xml):
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <rss version="2.0">
      <channel>
        <title>ben kaye-skinner</title>
        <link>http://kayeskinner.com</link>
